'm jennifer granholm. tonight in the war room john kerry gets ready to take over as secretary of state. and north korea sends him a congratulations message. [ ♪ music ♪ ] there was frightening news from the other side of the pacific today. north korea has vowed to continue testing new nuclear weapons and said it would launch long-range rockets that it claims can reach the united states. this is just after the united nations instituted sanctions on its last rocket launch. it does not seem to have much impact on kim jung-un. a variety of satellites and long long-range rocketses which will be launched one after another we will target the u.s. the sworn enemy of of the american people. settling accounts with the u.s. needs to be done with force not with words as it regards jungle law the rule of its survival. what? the country's belligerent stance is one more issue on the president's full foreign policy plate, and it's going to be a concern for john kerry if he's confirmed secretary of state as he's very likely to be, increasingly likely, as a matter of fact. he got a very warm welcom
and oppose the whole concept of this consumer bureau thinking it is not really necessary. bill: john kerry, nominated next hour. martha: yep. bill: interesting how he was actually on the schedule for the committee hearing at hillary clinton before hillary clinton sat down. martha: you can't chair a hearing and be in front of the table next day. bill: funny the way washington works. we're just getting moving here. notre dame's manti te'o is talking. why he says he continued to talk about a dead fake girlfriend after he knew she was a fake in the first place. martha: such a bizarre story. a deadly deep freeze. huge parts of the country are now experiencing temperatures so cold that a ski resort has now shut down. bill: and hopes for bipartisanship, is that already over? i mean it has been three days. why a top republican leader says president obama wants to annihilate the republican party. >> let me just tell you. i do believe that is their goal, to just shove us into the dustbin of it had. -- history hey, our salads.

. boehner. also, they're -- senator john kerry. also they're waiting for hillary clinton, john kerry to be the next secretary of state. secretary clinton wrapping up 5 1/2 hours of testimony before this committee and also before the house foreign affairs committee yesterday on the attacks in benghazi. you can find those in our video library at c-span.org. >> on c-span is waiting for the start of the hearing, confirmation hearing for john kerry to be the next secretary of state. this morning announced by the white house that the president will nominate mary jo white to be the new securities and exchange commission commissioner. and we will have live coverage of his announcement expected to be this afternoon at 2:30 eastern here on c-span. >> good morning. this hearing of the senate foreign relations committee to consider the next -- the nominee for the secretary of state will come to order. let me, again, ask as i did yesterday, since the full senate has not yet passed the committee resolution sitting members, i ask unanimous consent the returning members to allow our prospective memb
be her last major appearance in a diplomatic role. she hands over the reigns to senator john kerry after his confirmation. joining me now from washington, david ignatius of the "washington post." later we'll talk to michael gordon of the "new york times." david, as you watched this today, did it answer all the questions? >> well, it was-- it was a very lively exchange. most of the answers in truth have come out in the details, the report by the accountability review board, and the systematic timeline that it offered. what today provided was the drama of secretary clinton and her final major appearance defending herself, defending the administration, and getting very emotional and very feisty. and i think what we took away from this was how intense feelings are on both sides. the republicans really went after her today, and she-- she-- she pushed back hard. >> rose: did they, as they say,a lay a glove on her? >> well, i think on the basic issues here, benghazi, the republicans have a point. as the accountability review board report says, staffing for diplomat security was grossly inadequa
, former state department director, will be here to discuss john kerry's appointment to the secretary of state and what he means to obama foreign policy. we will be talking to a man who put the fate of the keystone pipeline and the fate of the president's hands. we have dave heineman with his approval to give president obama a second chance. we begin with the obama party is campaign to ban assault weapons. they not only want to ban assault weapons but certain handouts. for more on what the democrats are trying to do to our second amendment rights, we bring in shannon bream. reporter: senator dianne feinstein acknowledges that it will be an uphill battle. this new measure would ban the sale and manufacture and transfer and importation of 157 specific garments, along with a broader group of other guns that will meet at a lower threshold for being classified as an assault weapon is the sale and transfer and gifting of anything classified as an assault weapon. >> no weapon is taken from anyone. the purpose is to try up the supply of these weapons over time. therefore there is no sunset on
cavuto. unless john kerry pulls a silly was he can wall into his new office now. expected to easily get confirmation to run the state department but with scant discussion of our screwups in the state department. and it's not just hillary clinton getting it yesterday. it's almost as if everyone is looking at the threat facing thousands of americans and saying, it's no threat today. that worries former top diplomat casey mcfarland. it is the stupid of them. >> good to have you here. >> thank you. >> what do you make of this? >> a great opportunity. why? yesterday's especially, and even today, the focus is not on the problemmed of the future. especially yesterday when i grilled secretary clinton. it was talking points and timelines and stuff that really -- that train has left the station. we need to focus on the next four years, because if we don't, the bus will come off the trolley and secretary-to-be kerris going to have a hard item with the spread of terrorism in africa. hostage taking throughout the world, a nuclear iran. north korea will have long-rangl the other things happening with
you for reminding me of that chapter in my public clear and what you and john kerry accomplished together. i want to talk about the role of the united states, it is called upon to negotiate, to make it safer. certainly since world war ii, it has involved nuclear weapons and it does to this day as we discussed the future of nuclear entrance like, god forbid, iran intoork the nuclear club, which we don't want to see happen. we also know there came a new threat, terrorism, in a different form. biological and chemical weapons. organizations that attacked the united states and killed innocent people. but it was, i think last year or the year before, that we were briefed by the state department, department of defense, about the greatest threat to security in the united states and it wasn't either of those things. it was cybersecurity. i think you may have attended the brief, the classified briefing for members of the senate. democrats and republicans. they explained to us this invisible war that goes on even as we meet between the united states and many who are not our friends that are
and and saying that what are the differences going to be with hillary clinton gone and john kerry stepping in. we don't know what kind diplomat. >> hillary clinton is a rock star, i don't know if president obama used her to the fullest extent. she covered more countries over 100. and what we may see from john kerry is perhaps more focused diplomacy. certainly he has a lot of experience on the syria front. in the past he has worked, and i've written about this, as an informal envoy for the united states in afghanistan and elsewhere. and he'll be hankering for that kind of role where he can make a difference in some of these conflicts. there is a sense my sense from talking to people in washington is that president obama would like to pivot to asia but there is no doubt that he'll remain bogged down in one way or another in the middle east and north africa as we've seen in the past few days has become a major problem. that's where we'll see senator kerry head pretty soon. >> michael: let's talk about north africa, at least 35 people were killed when the islamists took hostage at the bp facility. is
senator kerry at the confirmation hearing. live coverage begins at 10:00 eastern. first, we will bring you "washington journal." then the senate confirmation hearing for john kerry. live coverage of the pentagon news conference with leon panetta and martin dempsey. and about 45 minutes, winnie stachelberg on gun control. max boot on foreign-policy. bradley shear worker rights in the workplace. >> as secretary i have no greater priority responsibility. as i have said many times, i take responsibility. nobody is more committed to getting this right. i am determined to be the state department -- to leave the state department safer and more secure. it meant moving quickly to respond to the immediate crisis, but also to further protect our people in high threat areas across the region and the world. host: we will get your reaction this morning to hillary clinton's testimony yesterday. we do expect misses clinton on capitol hill again today as john kerry has his hearing to replace her. for the first 45 minutes, we will get your reaction to the testimony. what's being written and on television. t
think the interesting thing will be to see whether senator kerry, when he goes to testify tomorrow in his confirmation hearing, whether or not he comes to it with more of a sort of big picture strategy of what he would do within the region. now, it's possible that one reason the secretary didn't have that, is, of course, she's been out sick for a good number of weeks and they have been cons e consumed by the individual incident in benghazi. >> of course, the overriding question that the republican critics have been focusing on is susan rice, the talking points, this is another one of the exchanges with senator johnson and hillary clinton. >> do you disagree with me that a simple phone call to those evacuees to determine what happened wouldn't have ascertained immediately there was no protest? that was a piece of information that koufcould have been easily easily obtained within hours, if not days. >> senator, when you're in these positions, the last thing you want to do is interfere with any other process going on -- number one. >> i realize that's a good excuse. >> no, it's the f
. thanks a lot. >> thank you very much,. connell: the big story in d.c. today would be john kerry. there he is. from what we have been told, a protester just had to be dragged out of that room a few minutes ago. the current record. of state hillary clinton was there yesterday testifying about the benghazi attacks. >> the democrats have their drool buckets ready. they think she will be the next president and hoping that she thinks of them favorably. it is all about 2016 for most of them. there were some republicans who opposed some tough questions to her answer real questions to her. dagen: to look at her and say, i would have fired you, that is just posturing. >> that is true, dagen. so much of this did not get to the core view. they knew full well that it was not due to a spontaneous uprising. connell: what does it matter now? >> that i think was the quote of the week, if not the quote of the year. i found it to be so outrageous. first of all, it matters to the four families of those four dead americans. it also matters that she and this administration lied to the american people for four
. >> senator john kerry arriving at the capitol. there's senator kerry. >> confirmation hearings. secretary of state. >> this is the entrance you see usually in the wide shots of the white house. not the back side with the rounded edge. but a flat-wide front of the white house. >> there you see senator kerry on the right. >> one of the big differences when you have a change of power, you know, current president greets the new president and one of the traditions is he leaves a note. that doesn't happen this time. president obama doesn't need to leave himself a note about the second term. outgoing vice president, great old desk. vice president's ceremonial office, old executive office building, where they sign their names. some traditions have you the transfer of power on a day like this where it is continuity, as jessica says, the president -- generous stroke to try to start, try to start with a reset saying maybe we can start and get along just a little better. >> it is interesting that mitch mcconnell was there who famously made the statement. >> senator john mccain there. senator feinstei
and that is not good news for the next man in line, john kerry. tracy: safety investigators looking into the problems, they say excessive voltage is not to blame for the fires that grounded bowling star airplane. ashley: phil mickelson take a swing. he coul can be reached take a me possibly out of the country. tracy: we have some good news for president obama heading into his second term. america's outlook on the economy is picking up. 37% of voters are actually satisfied with the state of the u.s. economy. that is up from 20% and the president first took office in 2009. a senior political analyst at the "washington examiner" joining us now from d.c. 37% satisfied. i guess it is better than down from 20%, right? >> we were talking about four years ago, we have been through major financial crisis and the outlook for some really major problems was unclear. when you have 37% saying they think it will be better, 63% don't think it'll be better. that is a pretty negative verdict and i think it is a lot different than you would have seen the day of ronald reagan second inaugural. tracy: his inauguration sp
afghanistan is something we have to look at very closely as well. >> are you encouraged by john kerry's appointment as secretary of state? >> i think it's really interesting. it's kind of a no-brainer. many people expected him to be, he's been very close to president obama. he's traveled. he's got a war record, veteran of the vietnam war. and he's very involved in that. and it will be very interesting because he'll also know what the limits are in terms of congress and the whole american system when it comes to enacting foreign policy. >> are you encouraged, optimistic by where the arab spring may go this year or are you quite pessimistic? >> i've been optimistic from the beginning. there will always be bumps in the road. but for me, this monumental epochal history-making situation in that part of the world is positive. and democracy is what has to happen in that part of the world. we're seeing the ugly side of the fallout in mali. but that can be dealt with if the west is willing to do it. you can't pussy-foot around these people. you have to be there for the long haul, whether it's
broadly, on national security, we will enter the beginning of confirmation hearings for john kerry as secretary of state, chuck hagel as secretary of defense. consideration of our military strategy, our military spending, how we project american power as we complete a winding down of the war in afghanistan. it is really going to be the end of a post-9/11 period in national security policy, with the policy going for it from there still unsettled. guest: the will still be a focus on the issues of national security, what just happened in algeria, the issue of al qaeda not being as weak a forceful as president obama campaign on. i think republicans will point that out. if we lost american lives again last week. so what are we doing to keep al qaeda at bay? that will be part of the discussion during the confirmation hearings and certainly with mrs. clinton's appearance tomorrow. host: on the issue of foreign policy, what will be president obama's legacy? where will the focus in his second term? guest: looking back over the first term, he did wind down the war in iraq. he's in the proces
congress before the house and senate both. her likely replacement senator john kerry, it is his nomination hearing tomorrow. the republicans have questions about what the state apartment -- department knew, why were warnings ignored? especially after the recent events in mali intervene and where we were backing them. and in algeria where three more americans at least have been killed. all these things are related. terrorists in algeria were using weapons from libya. all these things are related and the republicans certainly want to use this hearing to make the case that may be the obama administration and hillary clinton and others overstated the fact that al qaeda was on the run. host: secretary clinton will go before the senate foreign relations committee and 9:00 and then the house committee at 2:00 today. do we expect her to have a tougher time in either of those committee hearings? guest: the interesting thing here is both the house and the senate panels have new leadership. on the republican and democratic sides. there are four new leaders on both panels. this will be a chance for th
been sent over to the senate. the nominations of john brennan for cia, chuck hagel, and john kerry and jack lew for treasury. that is a big deal in the weeks ahead. bret: it is a tradition. these nominations have been out there and but they are formally made it to the senate so they can hope that the senate will move forward in the days ahead and confirm his new cabinet. as you know, there could be some roadblocks there. questions republicans have about jack lew being nominated for treasury secretary. they are not happy about the way some of the budget negotiations have gone in the past. of course, the debt ceiling in that debate will be hanging over those hearings. john kerry coming in, nominee for secretary of state. as chris mentioned, hillary clinton will be testifying on capitol hill, both the house and senate leader on benghazi. a lot of lingering questions on now. finally coming you mentioned chuck hagel as well. a lot of questions for him and his stance towards iran and israel. he has already asked so many of those questions on the sidelines. certainly it is usual that the
the issue is moot because hillary clinton is moving on and senator kerry's stepping up to the plate probably, so that's rand paul's opinion. >> do you think she'd make a good president? i have to ask that because 67% of this country view her favorably. her unfavorable is 28%. the president, anybody in this country, would die for that. >> listen, the people on the other side of the aisle aren't taking the fact this nation's going bankrupt seriously, so she's a member of that party, we haven't passed a budget in the united states senate for almost four years, so no, i don't think she'd make a very good president. >> and finally, sir, according to a new book, reporter michael hastings just wrote it. president obama called the widow of one of the people who died in benghazi, sean smith, the day after the attack and said, promise to, quote/unquote, avenge the deaths of americans. do you believe him? >> well, i'll take him as his word. but you know, that was another curious question i would like to ask secretary clinton is why when those bodies were coming home, she went up to tyrone woods' father
. host: do his picks for the secretariat of defense statement that? guest: both will be confirmed. kerry is someone who the senators approve of more than secretary rice, who is controversial. senator kerry is much beloved by everyone on capitol hill. john mccain said he would endorse him. that will go through without controversy. both of these men will be confirmed easily. people think the secretary of defense choice is a signal that we will not be as aggressive as somewhat like in defending israel. host: minimum wage. do you expect those issues to gcome up>? guest: the campaign was focused on jobs. the relative lack of direct engagement with how you create jobs during the inaugural address. this was not a set of policy proposals. there will be more about this in the state of the union. it was striking that the focus of the campaign was not terribly reflected in the address he gave yesterday. as far as labor issues, a lot of this is going on in the states. there is a national political aspect to this. i do not know what plans they have for some of these issues. it was interesting yesterd
ahead. she said she wanted them implemented by march for when her successor john kerry takes over. i think right now what she's interested in doing and what the state department is interested in doing is looking ahead. she mentioned about 20 high threat posts that u.s. posts in these countries are really still under threat. wants to make sure there's enough security at them. there was a lot of talk at this hearing about the threats posed in north africa. you saw what happened last week at the natural gas bp facility in algeria where three american hostages were killed. there was a conflict in neighboring mali where there are islamic extremists and the french are helping out the malians but the u.s. will be helping in that endeavor. how do you get a handle on the threat emanating from north africa and make sure the u.s. facilities have the resources they need to make sure the u.s. diplomatic facilities are safe? >> elyse labatt in washington. >>> let's move past the politics of the benghazi incident. we're being joined from beirut. you've been there. you've been on the ground. i'm cur
